Town of North Reading Residents
Pay Your Taxes and Bills ONLINE
To accommodate our residents who want the convenience of paying North Reading taxes and fees online, we've added a NEW payment option. To pay your Real Estate, Motor Vehicle Excise, Water or Trash bills, have your bill and checkbook in hand, and then...
It's convenient, fast and secure.
Online Payments can be accepted until 12:00 pm ( midnight ) of the due day without incurring additional charges.
Our office is located on the first floor of the Town Office Building, 235 North Street. Handicap access is available via an outside ramp at the front of the building.
You can pay by mail, or at the Treasurer/Collector office.
You can pay in person at our counter in the Town Office Building during our office hours. You can also drop off your tax payment anytime by using the drop-off box outside Building (No Cash); if using this method, please enclose your payment in an envelope along with the Collector’s copy of your tax bill. Payments dropped off after 4:00 pm on the due date, will be considered late and accrue interest charges.
For Your Information:
Real Estate/Personal Property Tax Bills are due quarterly; 8/1, 11/1, 2/1, 5/1. The bills are mailed at least thirty days before the due date. Typically, the 1st and 2nd quarter bills are estimated based on the prior year values and tax rate. The "actual" tax bill is due in the 3rd quarter after setting the tax rate.
If you do not receive your tax bill, or if you believe there is an error in the bill, please contact us and we will be happy to help you. Thank you.
